Yukon

Yukon is my first dog (as an adult) and I couldn’t have asked for a more special buddy. I adopted him from the local Humane Society in March of 2007 as an 8 month old gangly, goofy pup and he’s been my heart dog ever since. He might be just a plain black dog but he is bursting with personality and is just plain fun. He lives for frisbee, food and swimming!

RIP Buddy – 7/2006-5/6/2018

Mira

Mira is a nutty little Australian Shepherd that spent the first couple years of her life locked in a barn stall. I guess her original family didn’t research the breed as they locked her up because she was herding the neighbor’s horses (really, who’d have thunk it – a herding dog…herding). I adopted her in December of 2007 – she was a shell of a dog, scared of a lot of things. She still has a number of hangups but she’s now an insanely hyper dog, full of personality and impossible to keep up with. She keeps us all very busy, life would be quite dull without her! She has an intense obsession with all things round and can be found obsessively herding all of us around the house.

Cache

Cache is the spunky young Aussie addition to the Her On Wheels crew. Mira and I adopted him from a great family on June 6, 2018, a month to the day after we lost Yukon. He’s little, annoying and convinced he’s 80 lbs instead of 29 lbs. He already has a great start on his adventure dog career going on a multi state road trip, camping, backpacking adventure a week after he came to live with us. At 15 months old, he has a bit to work on to become a great dog citizen but I have a feeling he’s going to grow up to be an amazing adventure companion!

Me

Oh gosh, now for me…I’m a stubborn independent girl (err…woman, I guess I am 41) raised in rural Michigan. By day I’m a lab nerd, working in a mid-size hospital – as a  Microbiologist. By night (and weekend and time off), I’m a photography loving, fishing, hunting, outdoor junky with perpetually itchy feet.

Started puppy class last week with these two hooligans. While we both know how to train, working on things in the presence of 7 hyper puppies is great for the pups. These two are pretty solid on “leave it” as we use it for keeping them from tormenting the cat and curbing Mesa’s herding tendencies. • • #aussielovers #aussiepuppy #aussie #dogs #dogstagram #australianshepherdworld #australianshepherdsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #instadog #dog #aussies #puppylove #australianshepherd #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #aussiesofinstagram #aussielove #cute #doglover #reddog #redmerle #redmerleaussie #adventuredog #adventurepuppy #dogtraining #gsp #germanshorthairedpointer #germanshorthair #gsppuppy
Probably an unpopular view seeing as fall just started, but I can’t wait to get out ice fishing with my dad! #icefishing #fishing #michigan #walleye #saginawbay #lakehuron
Two nutty Aussies keeping busy in their own weird way. Seven month old Mesa herding his @jollypets Jolly Ball Push-n-Play around the yard and 14 year old Mira running her daily laps around the house.
